Wonderful trip to the nature on water

Had a tour in the morning, we were only 4 people and our guide gave us a wonderful tour. We got to know a bit about the less touristy islands which we didn’t even know. Even tho kayaking for 3 hours is very exhausting, we had a great time and it was really magnificent :)
Such a unique experience!!! See the lagoon of venice and the breadbasket of the venetian islands

This was a truly unique experience. My wife and I have kayaked in other countries but this was the most interesting. We got to see a part of venice that we would have completely missed. The lagoon is part of venice that too many tourists don't see and it's a pity as it's such a natural wonder. Valerio was a fantastic guide. He helped us understand the launching point at St Erasmo, which is incredible all in of itself, and then safely guided us in the kayak tour around the island to beautiful hidden spots and finally to a beautiful locals only beach. Valerio is a must to book as a guide if you want to see more of Venice than just San Marcos square!
Just great!
